I'm not in a hurry to do another commission piece as I have alot of other things waiting to be done. I leave for Austin in the morning and am hoping to get some artwork done there.

Have two big pieces I am working on, one is a commission and the other is for the Pearl Fincher Museum show the end of June. Belong to a group known as "Six Figure Artists" and we all painted the same model from different angles. I am posting mine, but it is in a rough state.
This piece sold last nite, right after I put it on the 1st page of my photobook. Oh well, I have always liked it and want someone else to enjoy it. I have a commission to do, and am waiting for a canvas size I ordered, should have it Monday and can begin. In the meantime, have started a new series, either "Patterns of Life' or "Life Patterns", can't make up my mind. Will upload first image.
